We went to have a bite to eat, a beer and to listen to some good music. We had good food, great beer and a great music experience. There was live music being played, people from the audience were playing along with the musicians, my cousin sang 2 songs and my sister got to twirl around the pub with one... More

I've been having lunch weekly here for the past two months. A sample would be the pulled beef burger with homemade spicy barbecue sauce and fries for 10 euro. Hot roast samdwich of the day is 7.50, again with fries. I always find the staff quick, the food clean and fresh and the pint of Guinness is good. All round... More

Really - tasty pub food? Is it possible? Nancy hands is a fantastic place to enjoy the wonderful pub traditions of Dublin; AND get a great meal. On top of the great food - the service is awesome . . . in-spite of the fact that they are always super busy. I must admit, I wasn't expecting much when we... More

First night in Dublin and this pub fell short. Nice atmosphere but seafood dish and chowder very watered down, with little seafood or substance to the dish. Could be such a great experience if they improved their food line.

If you are staying at the Ashling Hotel, or anywhere near Heuston Station, take a very short walk to Nancy Hand's on Parkgate Street. We ate there three times during our stay and were never disappointed. We ate near the bar, but there is a surprisingly large dining room behind the stairwell. Lunch and dinner were both excellent. The portions... More
